Receiver defaulting to factory restored settings after every Power On/Off

Owned this receiver for about 5 yrs. Recently, after every power on/off, the receiver defaults to factory restored settings. This means I have to go into the Setup screen each time to match the inputs to the components already plugged into the back; set the speaker levels, etc. This is really annoying since the unit's factory default for "DVD" is "D5"...but the Toslink Optical input (best quality for DVD) is only in slots D1 or D2 (Sources 1 or 2). Once I change this, I'd like it to "stay"...makes me think there's one of those watch batteries inside the unit that retains memory that needs replacing??

On the back of your tower you should have auxillary outputs that will go into your receiver. Get a connection going between the two ports and you should have perfect sound. The sound that comes out of your headphone output will not really have the amount of power that your receiver needs. Hope this helps.

There are four digital connectors on the back of the unit: 2 optical and 2 coaxial. They are marked a s 1 2 3 4. 1 and 2 are optical, 3 and 4 - coaxial. Also you have front optical connector marked as F.
You can connect 5 digital sources to your receiver. For example, connect your DVD to input 2 (optical) by optical cable and connect your DSS to input 3 by coaxial cable. Assign DVD to digital 2 and DSS to digital 3 in input setup menu.

You don't get the OSD on the screen because either the HDMI cable for the TV isn't plugged in the OUT plug (the one on the right) or the tv isn't set on the correct AV source (it should be n HDMI1 - if you have plugged the cable correctly on the tv).

Looks like the the unit is locked to region 1.

The Yamaha receiver you listed is region free, therefore I assume you are talking about a different unit, in that case give model please.

If you have the problem with a Yamaha RX-V661, then simply disconnect power cord for ten minutes. And disconnect from power all devices connected to the receiver.
This should reset the system.

Let me know in case it does not work.

You may reset the unit to factory setting. Hold buttons "Speaker" and "SpeakerB"and turn on power switch. Release buttons after 5 seconds. You will loose all your setting and need to do configuration again.
